January 5, 2022 | Investopaper

The work of Solu Corridor from Siraha to Solu through the Udaypur district has been completed. The work of the transmission line of the 132 KV double circuit corridor has been completed recently. The project has finished the construction of towers and the laying of wires for the corridor transmission line. A substation has been constructed in Tingla, Dudhkund Municipality-11 of Solu. 

Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has signed an agreement to purchase and sell 325 MW of electricity under construction in the Solu Corridor. The transmission line with 302 towers is 89.5 kilometers long from Solu to Siraha. 

A contract agreement was signed on Chaitra 2072 BS with the Indian company Mohan Energy Company Pvt. Ltd. to complete the project within 30 months. However, the project was delayed due to obstruction from locals of the Udaypur district. Due to a delay in the construction of the transmission line, the power generation of the 23 MW Solukhola Hydropower Project was wasted. Solukhola Hydropower Project started electricity generation from Magh 20, 2078 BS. 

The project has been constructed with the investment of the Government of Nepal and NEA and a concessional loan from the Exim Bank of India. The estimated cost of the project is Rs 2.50 Arba.
